  • your body is basically fighting what it thinks is an unnatural object...the stitches. Keep it clean. I used just a swab of peroxide (don't over use it because it does not allow the skin to heal but is great at eating the puss), a dab of neosporin and a clean bandage. Do this twice a day until you see the doc. Watch for any type of red striping from the incision, this is a sign of infection and you would need to see the doc immediately.

  • In my experience, surgical incisions will generally ooze some. Take kscmbz's advice, and if that doesn't do the trick, check with the doc.
